Open Access Publishing for Chemistry

11 November 2020 10:00-16:30, London, United Kingdom


Introduction
Scientists, librarians and publishers are all affected by the rapidly changing landscape of open access publishing, the proliferation of options available, and in some cases the confusion and uncertainty which can arise. The implementation of Science Europe's "Plan S", which stipulates that from 2021 scientific publications resulting from research funded by public grants must be published in compliant open access journals or platforms, will be a significant milestone. As well as examining the implications of Plan S in the UK and elsewhere, this meeting will explore the broader impact of open access publishing on the chemical sciences, addressing issues such as open access models, organisations' and end-users' experiences, licensing, ethics, benefits and pitfalls. Use cases illustrating new opportunities provided to chemistry by open publishing will also be presented.

Call for Abstracts
Submissions are open for contributed talks and poster presentations, and application forms are available to download. Posters will be displayed throughout the day and applicants will also have the opportunity to give a two-minute flash presentation.

Bursaries
A number of bursaries are available to support registration and travel costs for postgraduate students, the retired and those on career breaks. An application form is available on this page and further information regarding travel grants available for RSC members can be found at: www.rsc.org/awards-funding/funding/#funding-options
